Tipping Point

For gods sake, this is one of the worst shows imaginable..
The concept is simple enough. The contestants get asked questions to earn coins, which are then dropped into a giant coin-pusher machine.
You score points (pounds!!) coin that subsequently drops into the award area.

The ones with the most points (reminder : pounds!!) move on to the next round. Those that lose go home with nothing.. Not even the pounds they'd earned.. They get nothing...

Come the final round, the "winner" has a chance to win a ?10,000 mega coin. If they DO win the mega coin, they don't win any of the money they'd previously won, and ONLY get the ?10,000 from the mega coin.
Cheap. Very cheap!!

-=-=-

And, damn, if these questions aren't piss-easy...
Actual examples that I've actually LOLd at...
What game does a golfer play?
A Dubliner comes from which Irish town?

Basically, this show would melt your mind...
Dumb TV for Dumb people...

The Rant Box



; App Developers are Idiots

GfK's daughter, 7y/o, is happily playing a cheerful friendly children's game, when a happy little popup appears, offering an amazing number of in-game gems, for the fantastically low low price of just ?79.99
GfK is ecstatic!

; The Government are Idiots

You know what would make roads safer?
Removing all the lines, so that we all have to drive more carefully, because nobody has any fucking idea what's going on!

; People are Idiots

I generally work off the fact that anything I do on an internet connected device is probably being recorded, somewhere.
